Re-align with Acupuncture

Acupuncture is becoming more and more popular as people start to take responsibility for their health. In years gone by we would have obligingly taken medication from our GPs, nowadays people want to address the underlying reasons for their illness and are turning to holistic treatments such as acupuncture.

Robust scientific research backs up what many people have known for years – Acupuncture works.  Acupuncture has been shown (using MRI scans) to stimulate the body’s healing response – by balancing our hormones and our nervous system.

How does Acupuncture work?

Daily stresses, lifestyle choices, and injury upset our natural balance and lead to physical and emotional symptoms.  Kate uses very fine, painless needles to activate specific energy points to bring body and mind back to health.  A balanced body is a healthy body so after a course of treatment symptoms start to disappear and the patient reports feeling better physically and emotionally.

The Benefits of Acupuncture

Many medical treatments just treat your symptoms.  Acupuncture treats the root cause of your complaint.  This not only improves your complaint but also helps with other symptoms – you may find that you are sleeping better, niggling back pain has gone and you have a general sense of wellbeing.
